  1. Don’t forget that Greg wasn’t alone in his foreign trip during Beryl. One of the people with him was a top exec of CenterPoint who was representing them with foreign business interests. He’s not going to do anything to centerpoint that centerpoint won’t agree to behind closed doors.
  2. I stand corrected. I was specifically thinking that he uses Palestinian as an insult/slur but I referenced Muslim.
  3. I bet he spends those 30 days sitting in the guards office during the day, and a protective cell at night. He will spend his hard time watching netflix.
  4. OP - have you thought of spinning up a discord channel?
  5. True that some don't like Biden's stance on Israel/Palestine but their other choice is to actively or passively support Trump who uses Muslim as a slur. Trump will happily send them back if they're immigrants and perhaps even if they're Americans.
  6. Do people really fish in the bayous at an overpass? Two, never let strangers get that close to you. But this situation plus having the perfect camera angle makes me think it's fake too.
  7. and head coaches have the full confidence of the athletic director/owner, until they don't. Or the CEO has the entire board supporting them 100%, until they don't. A named senior advisor or campaign official will not be the one to announce that Biden is or should consider dropping out.
  8. the Biden flaw is that he can't easily speak on his platform to protect women's rights and other issues that matter to many. I believe his surrogates can do so but people tune in to hear the candidate not their cabinet officials or senators.
  9. whatever happened to conservatives getting mad about celebrities giving political opinions? (rhetorical question. I know they only meant that they don't want to hear liberal opinions.)
  10. Personally I've given up on FL and NC going blue in a close election. That has been teased for too long.
  11. Don't disagree. To me the only state that is most likely to flip back red is GA. Perhaps I'm stuck on history and stereotypes but it's tough to think GA votes blue again. And to show my math: AZ - Kari Lake running for Senate is a huge liability for Trump MI - Whitmer is popular, and the MI GOP is still reeling. (edit-misspelled her name) PA - Strong Dem senators and governor.
  12. I think Biden will and should drop out but I still see a decent chance for Biden to win. I think he takes PA, MI and AZ. They will be close and I wouldn't bet on any of them but each of these states have shown a tendency to vote blue statewide. If my math is right and the Dems take PA, MI and AZ, they can afford to lose GA, NV and Omaha.
  13. Yes Ike was stronger for fewer people. Some really nasty winds offshore.
  14. This type of incident is why I'm opposed to people walking around with guns. They see red for whatever reason, and they grab their gun. Too many people cannot control their emotions and they want to show someone that you can't screw with them.
  15. I don't see many (any?) deciding to vote against her or stay home, because they want a female President but Harris had already been elevated due to a Biden resignation.
  16. SIAP. While people want to say how Ike was stronger than Beryl, the official wind reports don't back that up, at least in the north side of Houston. Hobby experienced stronger winds with Ike. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/projects/2024/hurricane-beryl-compare-data/
  17. He will drop out of the race Sunday/Monday. To me, the open question is whether he resigns the Presidency. If Harris get the nomination, he should resign to give her the best chance to win. But Biden may put his foot down about resigning.
  18. They will sue to create chaos and start the case that the election is invalid. Of course if Trump wins, all of this talk will end.
  19. This is why there is a quiet campaign to keep telling MAGA that the US is not a democracy. The average MAGA person doesn’t understand the consequences but they can parrot the line and they won’t complain when they lose their vote. and if you don’t believe that MAGA wants to drop democracy, look no further than the Texas gop calling for an end to popular vote for state officials.
  20. On Jan 20th, Trump will sign executive orders for many if not all Project 2025 initiatives. what might slow them down is the recent SCOTUS ruling (overturning chevron) moving power from the Admin to the Legislative/Judicial branches. Sane people might be able to slow down project 2025 by suing that their inevitable agency decisions are not theirs to make.
  21. MAGA is ok with some minorities if they have a good paying job. Of course if your job is answering a phone, you better not have an accent or the MAGA caller will demand to talk to an American. Meaning a white person. you know that gop strategists have already decided how they can avoid Vance’s wife and kids names being mentioned in most campaign situations. Silicon Valley being an exception.
  22. Tax payers and electricity customers are not going to pay to bury the lines. And we know Austin isn't going to fund it. I'm guessing that most of Oak Forest still has pre-existing lines and the new poles/lines cannot protect lines downstream.
